Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, whose name has been mentioned as a dark-horse running mate for presumptive presidential nominee John McCain, joined the Senator from Arizona Thursday during a visit to the famed Basilica de Guadalupe in Mexico City.

Bush, the younger brother of President Bush who also has been touted by the GOP as a future presidential candidate, was visiting Mexico on a business trip.

Bush accompanied McCain atop the Papal balcony to pay homage to one of the holiest sites for Mexican Roman Catholics and predicted a win for the Republican candidate in November.

"I think he's going to win," Bush tells The Associated Press of McCain's chances against presidential rival Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill. "He just needs to be himself and not let Senator Obama redefine himself."

Although the two did not speak to reporters during their tour, Bush reportedly expressed confidence to McCain that the White House will remain in Republican hands.
